Text Remix The EFI shared core ‘Text Remix’ has had a great impact on the development of my project idea. It’s effect can be summarised as: inspiring the initial idea of combining a visual/creative narrative with AI to generate a response. furthering the development of this idea in response to Jane McKie’s use of Google […]

This week has been a juggling act of the following courses: Text Remix, Gamifying Historical Narratives, Creative Visual Narratives, Interdisciplinary Futures, and my Final Project. As such, the aforementioned have overlapped to inspire each other – creating an amalgamation of sorts. For example, the manhua comic I am drawing for CVN has bled into the […]

This week’s focus was Writing Speculative Fiction by the two brilliant lecturers: Jane McKie and Jane Alexander. The first day of the intensive focussed on differentiating speculative fiction from science fiction as a genre, examining the ‘freewriting’ writing style, and having the opportunity to listen to the ingenious author and research physicist, Helen Sedgwick. The […]

This week found me conversing on my ‘Final Idea’ with fellow students at UofE and family members. As a result, I was able to bounce several ideas around and to refine the ‘first-draft’ idea I’d first cooked up. Last night, whilst working on a separate project for GHN was when the journey ahead of me […]

This week’s focus was Gamifying Historical Narratives which brought two new disciplines into focus: game/digital design and history.  Throughout the first day, we had the privilege to listen to two historians (Dr. Gianluca Raccagni and Dr. Ian F. Hathaway) who introduced us to several key components of incorporating history into games. For example, Dr. Raccagni […]

This week took me full-circle back to my background in Literature and Education, as we began thinking about our final project idea for our thesis. I realised I am especially interested in prose, and how prose might look like in the future, especially in accessible areas on the internet which might be accessed by anyone […]

This week’s second intensive day was the stand-out event. Previously, on the first day, we were introduced to a number of different methods to do with creating visual art, and studied the work of several artists. It was an engaging and fascinating day. But, on the second day, we began the session with a truly […]

This week brought along a challenge I hadn’t thought I’d ever have to revisit: acting, and filming. For our team project, we decided to represent the format of oral storytelling through a film set in the near future (20~50 years). This decision came after listening to the fantastic lecture given by the excellent TF Caroline […]

This week was chock-full of interesting lectures that overlapped with each other in a multidisciplinary fashion. Having come from a Literature and Language background, I was pleasantly surprised by the challenge engaging with ‘new’ disciplinaries created. Some stand out points throughout the week included: Having to revisit Higher/GSCE drama in order to create a three-act […]
